ELM CLASS V WILLOW CLASS - ATHLETICS
On Friday 6th July it was a very sunny day and Willow Class took on Elm Class in some athletic challenges including throwing and catching, skipping and 60metres running races.
All of the children were extremely keen, enthusiastic and positive. They thoroughly enjoyed competing against their opposing year one class. It was a pleasure to see all of the children participating, trying their best and demonstrating exceptional sportsmanship.
‘I’m going to cheer for Willow class because I want them to win but I am also going to cheer for Elm Class because that is kind and we have to be kind and fair to everyone’ Sara.
Year One are very excited about their next contest.
Rowan v Larch Basketball Competition - Tuesday 3rd June 2014
On Tuesday 2nd June, Year 5 held a basketball tournament. The tournament consisted of two rounds: 6 v 6 matches and a shootout. Before the games began, we had some motivational speeches from a selection of children. Here is what they had to say!
“If you can’t win, at least bring pride!” Carlton
“Always be positive and if we don’t win be happy anyway!” Riece
“It is better to be supportive than to be a winner!” Chukwunyem
After our team talks we played 5 matches with 6 children in each team. Every child played with great enthusiasm and displayed remarkable technical skill. The first match was won by Larch but Rowan quickly caught up with a stunning victory in the second match. The third match played was again won by Rowan, but Larch pulled through to secure a win in the fourth match! The final match was a draw resulting in an overall draw with 2 games won by each class. Rowan, however, managed to score 6 hoops in total, and Larch a close second with 5. It was amazing to see every child shake hands and congratulate each other after every match, displaying a great sense of sportsmanship.
Next we had the head to head shootout! Each child had a turn to shoot the ball into the hoop. Again, we were impressed to see how supportive the children were of each other. Everyone clapped and cheered and showed great encouragement for every child, whether they were on their own team or not. The shootout was extremely tense, but in the end Larch won with an impressive 11 hoops! Rowan also did very well in the shootout with a score of 6 hoops.
Both Miss Clarke and Miss Gibson were exceptionally proud of the great sense of sportsmanship displayed by every child throughout the tournament, and we are looking forward to holding another Year 5 tournament soon!
